Mystery Toy


Pam’s Pictorama Photo Post: I bought this photo postcard on eBay a few years back and I have absolutely no idea what the toy is. Why it is toned pink? Who is the babe? (An Aesop’s Fable doll perhaps?  Was there a pink equivalent to cyanotypes?)  To complicate things further, I admit I am not even sure the photo is still in my possession – unusual, as I am frankly not prone to giving away or selling anything.  Stuff that sticks to me tends to be more or less permanent, but I have a nagging feeling I gave this to someone who was wildly enamored of it.  I found the scan and I offer it up to you all for your general enjoyment and to see if anyone knows anything about it to share. Otherwise it remains a tiny slice of another world and time, passing through.
